Centenary Tower Walk…

by on Apr.21, 2017, under Life, Photography

When visiting the Mount Gambier region, you should take a walk up to Centenary Tower to get the most scenic and panoramic views of Mount Gambier and the coast.

The tower which opened to the public in 1904 is located 190 metres above sea level and provides the best views of the city, its beautiful countryside and the volcanic landscape.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Another 360˚ interactive panorama taken with Dronepan and the DJI Phantom 4 flying just out from the Centenary Tower shows the fantastic views you can get from up here.

Using your mouse or keyboard (arrow keys) you can control your view and pan around the scene (and even zoom in and out). Clicking the square box icon towards the top left corner also allows you to run it full screen.

Unfortunately it was quite windy up here which meant the drone was moving up and down repositioning itself during the pano sequence which resulted in some near field stitching errors.

The walk up here though not particularly long is quite steep so be prepared to be out of breath :).

The view from up here at the tower across the Valley Lake towards Mount Gambier and the Blue Lake is quite spectacular.
